Voices of Now Theater Students

May 22, 2023

LJMS students recently performed to a packed house in the annual Voices of Now Showcase at Arena Stage in Washington, DC. It was a special return to this stage for LJ, which was the first Virginia school to participate in this unique theatrical opportunity over twelve years ago!  

Voices of Now (VON) is an internationally recognized, devised theater program where ensembles of middle-school, high-school, and adult artists work together to create autobiographical plays and films. These fast-paced, collaboratively written, physical pieces pose significant social questions relevant to the ensemble of artists and their communities.

These students have been working since February to create their devised theatre piece using their own words and thoughts. LJMS did a remarkable job creating their piece, “Ïnside Out,” which dealt with who we are on the inside and how that is not always what is seen on the outside. Way to go LJMS Drama Department!
